It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it.

Oscar Wilde

I had always been a great admirer of literature, especially Malayalam literature. Although I grew much closer to Malayalam literature, English, French and Hindi literature is not unknown for me.

In fact, I fell in love with LITERATURE only after falling in the cascade of Shakespeare’s works. His beautiful sketches of life was the major reason I directed my life into the path of writing. I fell in love with his beautiful words, depicting reality.

All the world’s a stage,

And all the men and women merely players;

They have their exits and their entrances;

And one man in his time plays many parts,

His acts being seven ages.

William Shakespeare
From As You Like It

I am quite fond of the stars of Malayalam literature.
